[klibc] ipconfig fails when an interface is flapping?

I had an odd situation yesterday, klibc 1.5.17 ipconfig was trying DHCP on
all 3 NICs in the server, but one has a bad switch that causes the link on
eth2 to go up/down every 10 seconds.  IPconfig would just time out.  If I
tell ipconfig to only try eth0, then DHCP address is configured, and the
netboot proceeds 100%.

I'll take a peek at the code but maybe someone here is familiar with the
behaviour already?
